What's the best farmhouse chandelier? We asked our parent readers for their favorites. Then we did another 7 hours of research, comparing chandeliers on overall quality and easy of installation. Which is best for larger spaces? Smaller nooks? Here are the ones we'd recommend.

Best Budget-Friendly Chandelier: DLLT Chandelier Farmhouse Hanging Lighting

Let’s talk the best farmhouse chandelier!

Yes, chandeliers can get rather pricey. When we surveyed our readers for their favorites, we put an emphasis on affordable chandeliers that have the farmhouse vibe. We took their suggestions and then did more research.

After all this, we thought DLLT’s Farmhouse Handing Lighting is the best bet for that farmhouse look . . . without breaking the bank.

What We Liked

• Easy to install.

• Easy to assemble. Yes, you have to assemble this chandelier, but that is very quick.

• Elegant!

• Soft, cozy light.

• Good overall quality.

• Holds 3 60-watt max candle bulbs, which are not included.

• Folds flat.

What Needs Work

• Smaller in real life than it looks. That’s a problem with many chandelier photos, overall—be careful to measure your space carefully to see if this one will work. This chandelier is 12.5″ by 12.5″ and the attachment plate is about 5″ in diameter.,

• Screws could be longer. 

Best Chandelier for Entryways

4 bulb design = 240 watts of light
Yes, this chandelier's frame is metal—but the faux wood finish creates that farmhouse vibe. Easy enough to install, but we wish it came with longer screws. Great bang for the buck.

Best Chandelier for Entryways: KingSo 4-Light Chandelier

The rubbed bronze finish and wood-like texture give this chandelier a farmhouse vibe . . . and the size (17″ x 12″ x 12″) fits nicely into most entryways or smaller spaces (kitchen nook). We like four light chandeliers for entryways (more light) and this one fits the bill.

What We Liked

• Easy enough to install.

• Loved the overall look.

• Open air design = easy to change the bulbs.

• 4 lights for total 240 watts of light.

What Needs Work

• Longer screws would help installation—you may have to purchase additional hardware to make this chandelier’s installation secure.

• Could be easier to adjust the height. There is a metal pipe to hide the cord at the top of this chandelier—it would be nice if this was easier to adjust, if it needed to be shorter. Measure your space to make sure this will work, especially if you have a more compact space.

Best Chandelier For Big Spaces

Black is beautiful
We loved this chandelier as the best bet for that kitchen island or larger dining room. 6 lights = 260 wattage of light. That's perfect for kitchens. Easy to assemble and install.

Best Chandelier For Big Spaces: Saint Mossi 6-Light Metal Chandelier

If you have a larger space to fill (think dining room or kitchen island), we think this chandelier is the best bet. At 26″ x 23″, it is about twice the size of the chandeliers we recommend above. And the 60″ chain is great for most installations.

Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Easy to assemble.

• Easy to install.

• Black metal aesthetic is beautiful.

• Very big! Measure your space first to make sure this will work!

• 6 lights, 260 watt total wattage.

What Needs Work

• A bit pricey.

Best For Slanted Ceiling

Easy on the wallet
This chandelier's chain is super easy to adjust—and that works well for installations with slanted ceilings. Loved the iron and black matte finish. Easy to assemble.

Best For Slanted Ceiling: Wellmet 6-Light Farmhouse Chandelier

Not every chandelier works for slanted ceilings—having an easy-to-adjust chain is the key. And for some reason, many chandeliers today lack this feature. 

That’s why we liked Wellmet’s 6-Light Farmhouse Chandelier for installation with slanted ceilings . . . it’s chain is super easy to adjust.

What We Liked

• 6 candelabra lights, yet easy on the wallet.

• Matte black metal finish blends nicely into most decor.

• Chain adjustable down to 31″.

• Fits well into large spaces (38″ diameter).

• Lights can be used with shades (extra purchase).

What Needs Work

• Chain may be too short for taller ceilings. This chandelier’s change is 35.4″ at full length. That might be too short for taller than standard ceilings.
